Our Theme this year is “Going Deeper!”
This is truly going to be a year to celebrate! Not only will it be our 15th anniversary for Kids in Ministry International, but it will also be the 10th anniversary of our PowerClubs! It’s just plain going to be a fabulous event! KIMI leaders and amazing veteran children’s ministers will be coming in from around the world to join us. Once again we will have a graduation ceremony for the School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry and our PowerClub Training graduates.
It’s a cake and ice cream celebration for everyone! But better than that, you will go away inspired, challenged, and equipped to continue raising a supernatural generation of children!
Going Deeper in our PowerClubs!
We have never wanted to just be another style of same-old children’s ministry. Our focus has always been on taking kids deeper in the things of the spirit and their walk with God. Founder of PowerClubs, and world-wide KIMI Ambassador Pamela Ayres will be speaking on how we need to stay focused on our goals in every PowerClub around the world.
We will also be addressing the most recent updates to the training and application processes to start new PowerClubs.

Now confirmed! Laura Diehl and “Come Grieve Through Our Eyes”
Wonderful news, everyone — It’s confirmed! Laura Diehl is going to come to our 15th Anniversary Kids in Ministry Conference called “Going Deeper,” and I have asked her to do a session on one of her new books “Come Grieve Through Our Eyes.” (now in our store: http://buff.ly/1RVMYLC).
For those of you who never knew Laura, she was an indispensable member of our leadership team, director of KIMI Wisconsin, and fully handled SSCM and PC all by herself. She lost her 26 year old daughter Becca while she was with us, and now has a blossoming ministry to help grieving parents deal with those issues. You will love her.

KidMin Charlie will be Graduating for SSCM & Speaking on “Radical Outreach” and “Supernatural Provision for Children’s Ministry.”
If you don’t know who KidMin Charlie is, you are in for a major treat. He’s a master artist, and themeing expert who worked as an Imagineer for Disney Theme Parks when God radically transformed his life. We walked away from the safe and comfortable lifestyle to follow an adventure with God. His primary focus today is a radical approach to reaching kids outside the church with his amazing Questmobile.
Charlie is a highly sought after speaker at children’s ministry conferences nationwide. But his DNA and heart is bringing kids into a supernatural walk with God, just like KIMI teaches. As such, Charlie wanted to become a certified graduate of the School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry, and we couldn’t be more honored to attract leaders like Charlie.
Presence Driven Families
KIMI Ohio Director, Alicia White, will be speaking on a topic she know much about — making the presence of Jesus a cornerstone of family life. Alicia has her own family ministry as well called Chosen Stones. We sell Alicia’s family devotionals and children’s ministry curriculums on our website.
Shane Cooke, Australian Children’s Pastor
A 30 year veteran in children’s ministry from Melbourne, Australia, Shane Cooke will also be coming to graduate from the School of Supernatural Children’s Ministry. What an honor to once again have such a qualified veteran in kidsmin desire to go through the training in our school! Shane is currently writing a curriculum for children called the School of the Prophetic, and we can’t wait till it’s released!
Culture of Dreaming and Children
One of our recent SSCM graduates, Stacey Linsalata, is developing a ministry to help children and families understand the the significance of children’s dreams. She has recently published a curriculum on “Encounters in the Night,” which we sell in our online store. We are excited to learn more about this very timely and important topic.
Preschoolers – Praising Powerhouses
Our resident expert in preschool ministry, KIMI Oklahoma director, Jody Gafford, will be sharing the importance of teaching preschoolers what makes our God different from all others, and how He loves them. This will include teaching the foundations of relationship with God and identity in Him. When they understand this, they are praising powerhouses!
Jody is a trained opera singer, and has led kids choirs for years. She is a also a clown, character actor, and puppeteer. Jody is in the process of writing a 13 week curriculum for KIMI for preschool ministry. We are praying it will be done by conference time! Jody is also the author of I Love Israel, a incredible little curriculum for preschoolers to teach them to love and pray for Israel. (See here: I Love Israel)
